Description

Reopening this issue: I just landed my first Mun lander; I turned OFF the reaction wheel and the probe core's torque. I switched to a com sat, then switched back to the lander. The lander's navball prograde indicator started shaking all over, then the lander dove to one side and fell over.

PLEASE CANCEL THIS....

OMG! This is what happens when you're tired, and don't realize that you only put 3 landing legs on your lander, and it fell over because the engineer was being an idiot...

FYI: I did just spend over an hour testing physics with various Mun landers - large and small, with and without landing legs. I started with an clean KSP install, and added mods one-at-a-time, launched and went to the landers to see what they did. I then loaded my lander from my career mode (the one that fell over) and JUST launched the lander... which fell over on the launchpad... <HEAVY sigh>

I really wish KSP had Surveyor-like landing legs.
